Hoeven says free trade deals will rev up economy

(CNN) - North Dakota Sen. John Hoeven said Saturday that free trade agreements can spur major economic growth in America, and called on President Obama to send a number of the treaties to the Senate for ratification.

“For the good of our economy – and our country – he needs to send these free trade agreements to the United States Senate for approval now, so that U.S. workers and businesses can begin to realize their benefits,” Hoeven said in the weekly Republican address.

Obama, Boehner tee off on the links

Washington (CNN) - The long-awaited golf showdown between President Obama and House Speaker John Boehner is underway: The pair, along with with Vice President Joe Biden and GOP Ohio Gov. John Kasich, hit the links around 10 a.m. Saturday at Joint Base Andrews.

The game was first suggested by then-White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs shortly after Republicans officially took control of the House in January. Boehner signed on that month, saying he'd be happy to play 18 holes with the president - although, he told one interviewer, he was "sure I'll have to give (Obama) strokes!"
